UConn Recruit Rises Above Fear Of All-Pro Dad

Greg Sr. was a great football player, but the rumored word out of the Steeler Headquarters was that he treated the staff terrible. I remember reading about the problems with his first wife. I know that his anger came out on the field when he played. I don't know what the truth is but I believe that the truth is somewhere in between! I hope that Sr. leaves Jr. alone because that is what the kid wants and I also hope that they both get the help that they need.

Rewritting Ali's history

I guess that he has mellowed with age, I know that I have and I look at things differently. He was a couragous man who stood up for what he believed and in the end, he made a difference! I don't suppose that my favorite (Joe frazier) agrees with me. Those two fought the greatest fights in my life time!

ACC admits to 'timing error' in final seconds in Duke win over Clemson.

It is always the Refs are cheating, except when it is your (Figure of speech.) team that gets the "Lucky breaks"! Coach K is a good coach and always puts a good team on the floor! (I am a Pitt fan.) I cannot see the Refs cheating for Duke. People make mistakes and believe it or not the Refs are human!

Tuna Melts

Jerry Jones forced TO onto the scene, Parcells never seemed the same after that! I think that whoever becomes coach might have to be a yes man for Jerry Jones.

Steelers Aren't So Grimm after all

I wanted Grimm, but give Tomlin a chance! I know that when the Steelers hired Coach Cowher there was a lot of grumling-Bill Who? (I was one of the them!) Look at what Coach Cowher did!

When franchises go bad.

As well as I like Freddy Sanchez, do you realize that the Pirates just finished thier 12th or 13th losing season? Do you realize that Jeff Suppan and the Cardinals just won the World Series? Right?

When franchises go bad.

As much as I hate to admit it, my beloved Pirates have become the worse basball franchise! The owners do not care about how well the team does and have made the Pirates a minor league team! We have supplied many teams with the players that helped them get to the playoffs and the World Series! Jeff Suppan comes to mind! Al Davis must be 150 yrs. old! I don't know the Arizona Cardinals & the new Cleveland Browns have been very bad too!

Barry Bonds Throws Teammate Under "Speeding" Bus.

I stopped believing anything Barry Bonds said a long time ago! First a cheater and now a SNITCH who is lying again! His story sounds like the old "But Mom I am holding these cigarettes for a friend!" He must think that the fans are really stupid! Be a man Barry, retire and go away!

Ready for a shocker?

Without LT the Chargers have an awesome defense and an average offense with a new quarterback still learning his trade. LT made that easier for him. I love Drew & thought that SD should have kept him but it looks like it worked out for the Chargers & the Saints. LT is in a class by himself and is the MVP. Pennington had a good year, Drew had agreat year! Drew should have been comeback player of the year. Go Chargers!

Sports Illustrated's All-Time All-Star Team

Like I said I guess that you never saw Clemente play. I didn't say Hank didn't belong, you said that Clemente didn't! Maybe you shouild go check on Clemente's stats. He hit safely in 14 World Series games that he played in, and was the 71 World Series MVP, not to mention 1 time MVP of the NL in the mid sixties, 4 batting titles and and 12 or 13 gold gloves! Just thought that I'd mention a few of his stats! I think that qualifies him.

Sports Illustrated's All-Time All-Star Team

Is this the best homerun hitters leauge or the best all around? Grum I guess that you never seen Roberto play! He and Willie Mays were the best "All around outfielders" that I ever saw. Even thought I love Hank Arron and agree that he should be on the team, with the game on the line and the winning runners on base, I take Roberto's arm in right field any day! It seems that Hank had to play left field in every allstar game that he Willie and Roberto ever were voted to play in! Wonder why?

Rick Mirer

None of that really matters if you can't win the Super Bowl! I bet that Danny Marino would trade most of his stats for a Super Bowl ring! Roger Staubach (And I am not a Cowboys fan!) has to be the best! He sat out a lot of years serving his country and was still able to play and be efficant! Go Bradshaw! I'll take the S.B. wins anyday!

NFL Curtails End Zone Celebrations

Barry didn't need the Lions! He could have gotten out of his contract and played elsewhere, instead he retired as a Lion! He did what was best for him. (Just ask former Oakland center Jim Ott what he should have done. I am sure that he will tell you from his wheelchair that he should have retired sooner! Or maybe we could ask Mike Webster, if he was still here!) Barry is a class act, we need more players like him & Larry Fitzgerald, who simply show their talent, hand the ball to the REF and go on their way. This goes for Joey Porter's "Boot kick" too! Let's play football!

Ricky Williams Tests Positive for Fourth Time

Marijuana doesn't kill? Ask Bamm Morris! He had a promising career struck down by the marijuana he was carrying in the trunk of his car. Not to mention the effect it had on his family! See you later Ricky, neither the team or your family can depend on you! Get some help with your problem!

An Olympic champion donates prize money.

I really admire what Mr. Cheek has done!However we have a lot of homeless people right here in the U.S.A. that need help. If everyone in the U.S.A. contributed a small amount of money to helping the poor in our nation, we could help a lot of our own people. So insted of worrying about what Mr. Cheek is doing, maybe we (I'm included.) should be looking at what we can do. It may not be very much but every little bit helps.

Tainted Steel

The Steelers won that's all that matters! Dropped passes and poor clock management (2 times) killed the Seahawks, not the refs! I don't hear any of you saying any thing about the block in the back that was NOT CALLED during the run back of an interception! It was very clear! If you were worried about being fair, you would mention all of the plays you thought the Refs missed not just the ones that feed your need to cry! Besides a great team can overcome mistakes, that's what makes them great! (The Steelers made enough of their own mistakes but still managed to win! One thing about the USA, you have a right to keep whining, so go ahead, knock yourselves out having what you call a "Good time"!

Steelers Won Super Bowl XL

To all of the "cry babies", I wish you some "cheese" to go with your "whine"! Too bad that you can't have the "class" that the Seahawks have and admitt that they just didn't make the plays when they needed to! You are probably still crying about the catch that "Jackie Smith" should have made in the Super Bowl against the Steelers!

Most Valuable Players Wanted More Valuable Paycheck

If the definition of "Being an ass" means having 4 Super Bowl rings,2 MVPs & a very sucessful career on T.V., then I am sure that "many" NFL Quarterbacks would love to be classified with Terry! I too was disappointed not to see "Bradshaw" but as an adult I know that people do have lives beyond Football! The real focus needs to be about the game and how much class that the Seahawks had in losing! They played a great game and proved that they belonged! Besides how many of you tell Steelers fans that they are "Living in the past!" when they talked about their last Super Bowl Win but now want to talk about the past and disrespect Bradshaw? Grow up, life is full of disappointments! Go Steelers!
